Looking for a bit of outdoor adventuring? Luxembourg has numerous adventure parks for you to try your hand at rock climbing, wall climbing, and outdoor ropes courses! Here are a few of our favorite places!
Boulder Klub Lëtzebuerg and the National Climbing Community have cooperated to create an amazing indoor climbing experience! It’s made of climbing sequences that, because they don’t have ropes, are low-height with artificial walls and soft landing mats. Climbers must be at least 12 years old, and each session is €5. The climbing center is located in the basement of an elementary school in Luxembourg City. There are no reservations required, but all climbers must wear a mask, social distance whenever possible, and sanitize before and after climbing! The center is open Monday through Friday from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM, and on SUnday from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM.

You also can’t climb the same route as anyone else, and you have to make sure to respect the surrounding nature at all times!
